The East Anglia franchise of plumbing and drainage company Drain Doctor Plumbing has acquired new premises in Woodbridge.

The move for its 25 employees to a larger office in Tide Mill Way, close to the historic Tide Mill, will allow for further expansion in the future.

“We are delighted to be moving to larger premises and to be able to accommodate our growing fleet of highly trained and qualified plumbing and drainage engineers, vans and support staff,” commented the company’s director Rob Simpson. “We grew our business by 40% in 2017 and we are on target to achieve our biggest turnover yet – to exceed £2 million in 2018, with plans to grow even further.

“I am confident that we can continue to develop our business, but if we are to raise our game even further, we need to recruit more staff over the next coming months. We are now in a position to do that with our new offices.”

Drain Doctor Anglia is an emergency plumbing, blocked drains and drain repair service that covers Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.

The company, which is one of the trade service brands for Neighborly, formerly Dwyer Group, offers a 24 hour call out service for emergencies, both domestic and commercial.

The family-owned business is part of a national franchise network of over 50 Drain Doctor locations across the UK.
